Tonight I am grateful for the amazing booksellers of the world who work tirelessly to place books in the hands of readers everyday.
I have found that booksellers will go to almost any length to promote a book that they love, like those in Australia, who sent me these smile-inducing photos of their “I’m with Budo” promotion.
Budo is an imaginary friend and the protagonist of MEMOIRS OF AN IMAGINARY FRIEND.
When I strike it rich someday, my plan is to visit every bookstore in the world with the goal of hugging as many booksellers as humanly possible.
And I’d make it a point of starting with these folks.
